Happy Easter!

Just wanted to take a moment to wish all of you a very Happy Easter! I hope that however you celebrate the day, it includes the love of family & friends.

Do you have any fun traditions for Easter? My mother is German, so we always have branches with decorated eggs hanging from them. Nothing quite like this family though! I couldn't imagine storing over 10000 eggs! lol

This blog post from Romantique and Rebel reminds me a lot of my visits to see my grandmother, as well as the boxes of Easter treats that would arrive from Berlin. I've been thinking about her a lot and missing her tons. I hope that she is having a wonderful Easter with some of her siblings and friends and eating a Lindt truffle egg for me. Oh my goodness, Germany is THE place to go if you are looking for Easter sweets and decorations. :)

Unfortunately this year I didn't have time to put out many kind of snuck up on me and this week has been a whirlwind! But we did dye and decorate some eggs last night, with only one dropped (you can see it in the picture, the blue one on the left)...and in the end Davin liked the look - it reminded him of a spiderweb. I'm glad he's generally a go-with-the-flow kind of kid. :) We had some cool double sided stickers that we put on the eggs and then covered with glitter and flocking powder...they loved that!

We did a little egg hunt with the kids early this morning before I had to dash off to work. Once I head home I will be making a quick dinner...our original dinner plans fell through because of an illness in the family so I offered to host a small dinner instead. Here's hoping a ham doesn't take too long to cook! lol It will be a little nuts, but it's worth it - my family is small but it's very important to me.
And Happy Easter from Cheeks! I think she is ready for a forever family who won't humiliate her like this! I just couldn't resist, though. And the cats would never tolerate this anyway.

I hope you all enjoy your day!

p.s. This is my 100th post! Hurray! :)
